Toronto Catholic District School Board

International Day for Eradication of Poverty

October 17, 2018

 

In this the first year of our new pastoral plan--Rooted in Christ, we Belong, we Believe, we Become, the Toronto Catholic District School Board celebrates the many ways in which we all Belong. TCDSB is dedicated to ensuring that all students, staff and families feel a sense of belonging to their school communities and to work to eliminate any barriers that may exist that would enable each individual to feel affirmed. It is appropriate to acknowledge the day to eradicate poverty as the lack of resources can become a barrier to student achievement and well-being. Acts of charity are driven by the desire to help those in need--those who are less fortunate, who have less than we do, who need support, kindness, acceptance and love.
